Astronaut Alan Bean died Saturday at the age of 86. Bean was a member of the Apollo 12 mission and the fourth human to walk on the moon.
Bean spent 31 hours on the moon during the 1969 Apollo 12 mission. Even he couldn’t believe where he was walking.
Bean told NPR in 2016, “I remember ... saying to myself, ‘You know, this is really the moon. We’re really here. ... That’s the Earth up there. And I said it two or three times to myself.”
He later commanded the second Skylab mission in 1973 and spent 59 days orbiting the Earth.
After he left the space program, Bean became a professional painter.
